“We are honored BIT asked Northwest Analytics to keynote the conference and highlight how food safety must move from being a top concern for food manufacturers to a top operational priority instead,” noted Mr. Guilfoyle. “I'll talk about how leading industry companies are using a combination of the Food Safety Management System (FSMS) and enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) to accomplish that initiative.”

Mr. Guilfoyle will also be highlighted in one of the conference sessions about how the use of manufacturing intelligence and analytics is enabling food manufacturersto move from react-and-respond to predict-and-prevent process management to improve food safety and lower operational risk.
